The Mascom Top 8 second leg matches gets underway this weekend with a reverse of the fixtures from last weekend in Molepolole, Serowe and Selibe Phikwe respectively.
With a total of 14 goals scored last weekend, more are expected as teams as teams seek a place in the semifinals.
On Saturday BDF XI and Police XI will have a final go at each other at SSKB stadium after the two teams played to a 2-all draw last Thursday at Molepolole Sports Complex.
The defending champions BDF XI however have an advantage due to the two goals they scored away.
Should the second leg end goalless or with a 1 all draw then ‘Matebele’ as they are affectionately called will sail through to the semi final of Tse Di Tona, and be on course to defend their title.

Ronald Chikomo, Benson Shilongo and Abednico Powel were the scorers for GU last weekend.
The Mascom Top 8 games in Molepolole on Monday on what would be an epic clash between Nico United and Mochudi Centre Chiefs.
Magosi will be looking to cancel a 3-0 deficit from their Sunday game in Phikwe where many had expected Magosi to have an easy game against Nico who have not been doing well in the league.
All Nico’s goals came courtesy of midfielder, Richard Legwaila who drilled three goals past Rafael Nthwane in the second half.
The last game of the Mascom Top 8 quarter finals second leg would see Township Rollers hosting Motlakase Power Dynamos from Palapye.
Rollers had an easy game last Friday night at a well attended match in Serowe.
The stadium was filled to capacity, and was evident that Batswana in different parts of the country are longing for elite games. Some football fanatics came all the way from Orapa, Letlhakane and some areas of the Tswapong region at night just to come and watch the game of football.
Kobamelo Kebaikanye is expected to continue with the exceptional performance he displayed in front of the sold out crowd at Serowe Sports Comple.
